Abstract

This article explores the concept of the student teachers identity and the form it takes during Initial Teacher Education (ITE). There is an examination of the recent changes in England's government policy towards ITE and how these impact the teaching identity. It is argued that the student identity does not exist in isolation and therefore there is a need to look at the impact of the social environment on the agency of the student teacher during their training year.
